legendary indeed...I was introduced to her accomplishments by a professional bassist I am acquainted with.

It has been said of Carol Kaye, "You've heard her bass, but not her name."

played on the first 2 Mothers of Invention albums, Pet Sounds
played with Elvis, Simon & Garfunkel, Johnny Mathis, Lou Rawls

and many, many more

I don't know if this was supossed to be a list but Carol Kaye is one of the most well known and respected bass plyers ever. Her contibutions was w/ the Beach Boys studio albums and many other sessions kinda like Kenny Oranoff is a session rent a drummer.

My bad - read too fast. And I like your list. Just so many to come to mind once you start thinking about it. Christian McBride is a guy that has really impressed me in recent years.
